Wyeth persuaded a Pennsylvania judge to throw out a $1.5 million award to a woman who claimed the drugmaker's menopause medicines caused her cancer.
Judge Norman Ackerman in Philadelphia declared a mistrial yesterday without explanation and discarded the Oct. 4 jury finding that Wyeth's Prempro and Premarin were a cause of Jennie Nelson's breast cancer. The jury last week set compensatory damages at $1.5 million, raising the possibility of punitive damages in a second phase."
